Description

The Braun Silk Epil 7

An electronic device invented in 1986 that mechanically yanks out multiple hairs in a go the epilator is similar to tweezing hair except it hastens the process up. Like waxing as well but without the application of anything on the skin and it pulls out the hair but does not remove cells from the epithelium of the epidermis.

Today many different brands produce them, among these is the German brand Braun. Their range of epilators is considered to be some of the best. The Braun Silk Epil 7 has some refinements that make it a great option. It has 40 tweezers set onto a pivoting head which makes it a lot easier to glide over. It is a cordless device, giving one a lot more ease as the cord can get in one's way. The Braun Silk Epil 7 also has a light so one can see the skin and hair better.

The Braun Silk Epil 7 comes with multiple accessories, these include the sensitive area cap, an efficiency cap, a massage head, a trimmer head, a safety cap, a facial cap and a small brush that one can use to clean the epilator. These various caps allow one to make more effective use of the epilator on the various areas of the body.

This model is washable too, which makes it a lot easier to clean and one can also use it in the shower without worry. 

Using an epilator

Using an epilator the first few times can be painful depending on skin type and the pain threshold, which varies from person to person. One of the benefits of using one is that you will have smoother skin for longer in comparison to shaving or hair removal creams, but this also does depend on how fast one's hair grows back. So for some people the timing may be a lot longer than others. For areas that have loose skin it is recommended to keep the skin taught using one hand and then using an epilator and going slow. You wouldn't want skin to get caught into it, that would be a lot more painful than the hair removal pain even. There are also epilators with varied head sizes so you can use the size which fits the area best. 

Advantages of owning one

The advantages with epilators being that you can use them yourselves and are a cheaper alternative since it is a one time cost; you'd have to run one into the ground after having it for long and then need a replacement. Another great thing is that you only need hair that is about 2 millimetres long to epilate with most epilators so there is no need to wait many days for hair to grow back. Some epilators remove hair as shorts as .05 millimetres so keeping your skin clear of hair is a lot faster and efficient. Anecdotal evidence suggests that using an epilator reduces hair, makes the hair thinner and lighter (akin to waxing) which in turn makes epilating again easier.

Considerations

On the flip side, epilators can cause some inflammation and minute bleeding when the hair gets pulled out, but usually, after the first time the hair follicle heals and becomes more resilient and doesn't bleed. The skin damage otherwise happens only with areas that have more loose skin.

Added information

Epilators are convenient and save money and initially one can go slow to get used to it, there are also the options of heads that have more tweezer counts so they work faster. The Braun Silk Epil 7 is priced at a mid-range.
